SUBJECT to the successful outcome of an extraordinary general meeting and a creditors' voluntary arrangement, Barry Town have appointed a new management team.
Former Aston Villa, Shrewsbury and Cardiff City player, David Hughes, and Rhondda Cynon Taff Academy head, Jason Murphy are the club's new managers.
The two will take over their new role on Saturday 6 September when the Dragons face Caersws in a Welsh Premier match.
For tomorrow's game at Caewrnarfon Town and Tuesday's Welsh Premier League Cup meeting with Caersws, Barry will field an amateur eleven.
Said Hughes: "This will be a fresh start for everyone connected with the club.
"I have spoken to the consortium and our targets have to be realistic in light of recent events.
"The main objective this season is to stay in the Welsh Premier league. It's as simple as that."
The club registered 22 new players on Friday afternoon to make them eligible to play the following day.
Most of them played for N & M Construction last season in the Regal Travel South Wales Amateur League Division Two - that's five divisions below the Welsh Premier.
But former manager Brown and last season's squad are still insisting they have not received any official conformation that their services are no longer required.
They believe their contracts are still valid and have been given legal advice to turn up for work as usual.
They spent a fifth day locked outside Barry Town's Jenner Park ground on Friday.
